Dead is the New Black

Dead is the New Black
Christine DeMaio-Rice

Laura is an amazing pattern maker with a crush on her boss. She arrives at work one morning to find him standing over a dead body. The cops think Jeremy killed his financial backer, but Laura just can't picture the man of her dreams doing something so terrible. She sets out to do a little investigating on her own and gets in way over her head. There isn't one person in her life who turns out to be what she thought they were, including her family.

This story was well written, fast paced and fun. I know almost nothing about the world of fashion. But the story was told in a easy to comprehend way. I never felt lost in a world of technical jargon.

The characters were real and Laura was very likeable. The author was able to keep me guessing about the murder because so many of the characters were unlikable. I liked the realness of the relationship between Laura, her mom and her sister.

Definitely a fun murder mystery that I would recommend to my friends.

I received this book free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
